I think you are off here.
If the renter is so much a pain in the *** that they won’t allow anyone in the house, no way would I even consider letting them stay on as a tenant of mine.
The ownership idea sounds more interesting…if you can get this person to let you check their credit. That might be difficult considering they won’t even let you in the house. But I basically agree with the first response - offer low subject to an inspection, and then get the tenant outta there.
You could also make the offer subject to the property being delivered vacant. That would make the tenant the seller’s problem, not yours…
